In 2014 Matthew Dean, Katherine Lee and Brother John Bosco Mills CFR recorded an album of original contemporary, contemplative Catholic Music called ‘Streams’ which draws on their combined technical, musical and spiritual gifts.
Containing songs written and produced by Br John Bosco, Katherine and Matt, some of the songs from Streams have featured on the site Pray as You Go. http://www.pray-as-you-go.org/home/
People have been listening from as far away as Singapore, Australia, Canada, East Timor, Cairo Egypt, New Zealand, Ukraine, Ireland and of course the UK. Here are examples of some of the feedback received from purchasers of Streams:
I love this music and have just been using it for our contemplative prayer group. I’ve forwarded the link to several friends so hope they buy it too. Thank you. Margaret Brooklyn.
Both cd’s arrived and I have been listening to them before I responded. The music, and prayerful wording is so meditative. I can understand why the Pray As You Go staff has sought you out! We will use your music for prayer here in our small retreat centre but also promote it among our Order and retreatants. Blessings on your Team and ministry in music. Sr. Anne, San Diego.
I was pondering this morning as I order this music that I had heart-longing for worship music for a while and God has given abundantly recently. Thank you for your part in that.
I learned about you from pray as you go. Kathy, Toronto
I’ve finally taken the time to listen to the other tracks on ‘Streams’ – truly inspiring !!! Will now take the time to learn to play them too !

A most beautiful song; heard during my pray-as-you-go. Ironically, (or not) I was beseeching the Lord for guidance in making a most difficult decision. The lyrics spoke to my heart, mind, and soul. Played for my mother who has Alzheimer’s, and we were both moved to tears. Thank you. ‘J’
A gentleman in our cancer prayer support group shared a couple of songs with our group last week, and we all thought they were just beautiful. I also led a retreat day on Saturday for cancer sufferers and their families and played the ‘Touch me with your Love’ song as our prayer for the start of the day. It was just stunning and created just the right contemplative and worshipful atmosphere that we wanted. Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful, worshipful cd. We are looking forward to using it again in our group. Helen
